Under Oath

I do solemnly and sincerely and truly declare and affirm that the evidence I shall give shall be the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. I promise before Almighty God that the evidence which I shall give shall be the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

Nikki Haley, the former Governor of my “great” state, the same state that sadly also gave us Lindsey Graham, is on a book tour promoting her work of fiction called With All Due Respect or better known as Why do my orange lips taste like Trump’s Ass. On television this morning Haley claimed, to no one in particular, that Trump is “truthful”. Now she has no way to prove the correctness of that statement nor did she offer any proof. We simply have to take her word for it and, she hopes, buy her book to find out.

As you can imagine I am very disappointed in Nikki. I am hopeful that kissing Donald’s orange ass will bite her back. Certainly, once the corrupt piece of shit becomes a sad footnote in American history we will have Nikki’s book to remind us that she was willing to sell her soul for a few pieces of silver and gold and maybe a shot at V.P.

I didn’t always agree with her decisions as governor but I respected the way she handled the tragedy at Mother Emanuel AME Church in Charleston and her insistence that the Confederate Flag be removed from the grounds of the state capital. But apparently she has gotten over her color blindness and the brown girl has now hooked her star to the white nationalist party. Whatever morals she once had are no longer needed in the Trumpublican Party and certainly play nicely in Redneckville, South Carolina.

For only the third time in American history a United States President will face impeachment. Over the course of several weeks, maybe months, individuals will stand before Congress and take an oath “before Almighty God” to give “the whole truth and nothing but the truth”. Guess who will not be taking an oath? Guess who will not be standing before Congress to tell the truth? Guess who won’t let his key officials come before Congress and speak the truth? Can you guess?

You see, all of the crazy conspiracy shit Trump says, Hillary, Deep State, Never Trumpers, at his rallies, standing next to his helicopter or in his tweets has nothing to do with the truth because he is not obligated to tell the truth. In fact, despite what Nikki claims Trump is unable to speak the truth. It simply isn’t in his DNA. For Trump, lying is who he is. He looks at it as marketing, and branding. It’s why we can’t see his tax returns. It’s why he makes employees and White House staff sign Non-disclosure agreements. And today, it is why he won’t allow current and former White House officials testify before Congress. It has nothing to do with security or executive privilege and everything to do with keeping Trump’s lies hidden from public view.

I don’t know how this impeachment plays out but here is what I do know, the men and women who will be testifying in front of Congress and in front of the American people will be telling the truth. And Trump who will be tweeting like a mad man 24/7 will be lying because that is the only “defense” he will have.

  1. I was extremely disappointed that Nikki Haley defended the Liar-in-Chief. I guess she doesn’t believe in video recordings of Presidential pronouncements any more than he does. At least, we know not to even consider her when she runs for the Oval Office in 2024.

  2. You and I remember the days of moral compass and values. Hopefully this impeachment will resolve quickly. trump has accomplished what he set out to do – to be on every media screen every hour of every day whether it is negative or positive coverage. I refuse to die before I see him in an orange jumpsuit behind bars. That will be the only acceptable justice in my eyes.

    Well said, and amen! Nikki Haley has sold her soul to the devil at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. I too at least had a modicum of respect for her, for same reasons you listed. Not anymore. Clearly she appears to be auditioning for the vice-presidency. Does she not realize that everything Trump touches dies? Excellent post
